Current Chelsea striker Didier Drogba has revealed that he intends to postpone his retirement for one more year by playing next season, according to The Sun.

The 37-year-old has given serious consideration to hanging up his boots at the conclusion of the season, but he has since stated that he will look for a new deal – though it will most likely NOT be with Chelsea.
Drogba has struggled to make a meaningful impact upon his return to Stamford Bridge from Turkish giants Galatasaray this year, though he is expected to enjoy a short run in the side in the wake of Diego Costa’s injury.
“I have made a decision, yes and no, it’s NOT my last season,” he said.
He led the line in the 1-0 victory over QPR at the weekend, and will look to do the same again against title rivals Manchester United and Arsenal in their next two games.
“It’s difficult when you don’t play and then have to go into these kind of games. But I try to give my best. I tried to give the best of my physical capacity against QPR, so if the manager needs me I’m ready.
“We are only looking forward. We just wanted to win to get closer to the title. We still have those two games against Manchester United and Arsenal to play. But we try to only think about our game. We are top of the league.”
And though the Ivorian has refused to give anything away, he will most probably come to the attention of a number of MLS clubs looking to sign a new designated player.
